Transfer or Freshmen: which are you?
Transfer students have graduated from high school at least one year prior to beginning a program at Appalachian State University and meet the following criteria:
- Completed 30 or more semester hours of transferable coursework at another accredited college/university.
- Must have at least a cumulative 2.0 GPA on their college work (as computed by Appalachian).
Transfer students with less than 30 semester hours of transferable credit must also meet freshmen admissions requirements and submit SAT or ACT scores. Please note that transfers are reviewed on a rolling basis and are encouraged to apply six months prior to their intended date of entry.
New freshmen students have graduated from high school/early college/middle college less than one year prior to beginning a program at Appalachian State University or have completed less than 15 semester hours of work at another college/university. Students that are currently enrolled in a high school/early college/middle college program should apply as a freshman.
